As the leading authority on laneway development in Toronto, we consider ourselves to be stewards of the Changing Lanes policy with an ongoing mandate to educate the public on this unique alternative form of housing. As a part of our continuing work in advocacy and education, Lanescape offers a wide array of lectures, workshops and information sessions surrounding the topic of laneway housing, responsible densification, and Toronto’s housing market at large. Each event is tailored to homeowners, designers, related professionals and general enthusiasts. The Lanescape approach is centered on tailored events, interactive presentations and simplified graphics to provide clear, concise, and useful information on this exciting new typology.
Our workshop series is aimed toward homeowners and professionals seeking detailed information on how to assess properties for conformance with the City of Toronto’s zoning by-laws. Our team also offers on-site group sessions that are excellent for neighbourhood groups, realtors, developers, and design professionals.
